Elliot got to do his first real painting today... paint cups full of tempera, chunky paint brushes, smocks, the whole shebang. He was a little tentative at first, but quickly got into the spirit of things. Before you knew it, he was mixing colors, feeling the wet squishy paint, and getting smudges of it from his fingertips to his elbows. It was a super fun play date at John's house. From what I could tell, all of the boys (yes, John included!) had a ton of fun.
